Summary: I have owned this camera now for a couple of years and it has given excellent service. Shipping was timely and it was received in perfect condition. I would have liked to have a BULB setting like I have with my old 35 mm but this thing takes really good pictures. I like the 12mp because I can zoom in with my computer to see details very clearly.
Summary: This is a cheap digital camera, no question about it, but for the price you get a very nice camera. It's small, uses readily available memory cards, and seems to take very nice pictures. It also has a 5x optical zoom, which in hard to find in this price range, and it does short movies. The camera is a little slow compared to my much older Olympus, but that may have been due to the batteries we were using.
Summary: I bought this to replace my Olympus FE-310, which was also a great camera. It served me through the sand, dust and rain of Iraq for almost 2 years, and then another year of outdoor expedition after that. It finally bit the bullet kayaking, when I capsized, BUT it didn't fry the memory card, so the pictures weren't lost. This camera is the newer model, virtually identical, same maker, same design, same layout, just 4 megapixels finer, and great optical zoom.
Great Little Fully-Featured Camera - Photos To Prove This!
25 January 2012
Summary: There have been some poor reviews on this camera, and reviewers who have judged it harshly. My experience with this has been good. I have some photo examples to share and will update as time allows. Please cut and paste the links below to see these examples: ***EDITED*** Evidently, photo links are not allowed in these reviews. I have provided a few photo samples in the Product Information section, though they are small.
Summary: I bought this camera for Christmas for my daughter because she wanted a bigger screen to view. This is just the right size. Not to big and not to small. I like the fact it has many different shooting options and scenes to choose from and very easy to navigate through them. I have a coolpix and was considering switching the two. I know she will love this camera so maybe I will just look for another for myself.
Summary: I've had my Olympus fe46 for a couple years. I've taken some really beautiful pictures with it. I've taken hundreds and hundreds, perhaps thousands of mostly flower pics, pics of my three cats, holiday and family get-together's, and church functions. The price is great on this camera. If you are into professional photography then you need to purchase something else, but, I tell you, I've taken some really nice pictures, once I learned how to use it.
Olympus FE-46 Digital Camera Coloring Set 12.0 MP.
24 October 2010
Summary: The Olympus FE-46 12MP Digital Camera I purchased came with a Coloring Set on eBay. This camera has loads of features which will send its owner in ecstacy. The fact that it takes AA Alkaline or Rechargeable Batteries is one of its greatest advantages as these are available everywhere.
Summary: I like the nice big screen. I'am going from a 3.0 to a 12.0 megapixel. That means when I sell items on EBAY, I can get real nice close ups and detail for the buyer. The camera looks new, has everything I'am looking for. This is an awesome camera for the money. Well packaged with Memory card, USB/ TV cords and the DVD manual plus booklet. I will enjoy all the great features of this camera for a long time. This is what makes Ebay great!!
Summary: My second Olympus camera! First one has lasted nearly ten years with absolutely no issues at all. Went for an upgrade, but keeping the 4.0 megapixel as a backup. This FE-46 is a great value. Has a 5x zoom which is more than most of the more expensive cameras. 12 Megapixels is a plus too, since most of the point and shoots now are ten. You can buy other brands, for more $$ but I can't find a reason why. Olympus is a great camera!
